First off, thanks to Irothtin at theglorioblog.com for this awesome idea.
The name of the game is “Manga Monday.” The rules? Hit the “Random” button on any Manga reader website to find out what manga we’ll take a look at this week.
This week’s random manga is – Assassination Classroom
A currently ongoing Weekly Shounen Jump series.
“The students of class 3-E have a mission: kill their teacher before graduation. He has already destroyed the moon, and has promised to destroy the Earth if he can not be killed within a year. But how can this class of misfits kill a tentacled monster, capable of reaching Mach 20 speed, who may be the best teacher any of them have ever had?”
Definitely one of the weirder of the Shounen Jump series I have ever read. What makes this series seem so interesting is the mystery behind the simplest questions: Where did this tentacle-creature come from and why does he want to be a teacher to these kids? A neat, 1-page flashback (that I did not link below) vaguely hints an answer to the latter. The art style isn’t bad and the writing itself seems to hint that each student has their own problems to deal with, in which Koro-sensei could help these kids out GTO-style. I think I’ll add this to my manga backlog.
